Presented here are selections of Twentieth-Century verity works by authors not found (so far, at least) in the 47 lists compiled and collated at Greater Books, as well as additional works by authors included at Greater Books (as shown in its master list) but for whom those included works arguably are unrepresentative. These works have been selected based on consulting general reviews of the major academic disciplines, reading essays in the London Review of Books, the Nation, N + 1, and similar periodicals, noting works cited by authors as significant influences or turning points in the discussion of major issues, and more broadly an author's popularity, notoriety, or combination of the two.

Nearly all "great books" lists, canons, reading plans, etc., emphasize fiction—thus the many non-fiction works of the century past that one may expect to find in such lists but does not.

The Twentieth-Century verity found in the Greater Books master list, unfortunately quite random, is included here too, to allow for easier comparison; they are the italicized items. Of these works, those that I would include in this list if they weren't already listed (that is, those that seem to be more significant) are not crossed out.

Authors' names are in bold to make this lengthy list easier on the eyes.

For those works not written in English, the original title may not be available (most likely, rather, a transliterated version of the title derived using the transliteration systems favored by Greater Books has not been found); on the other hand, if the work has not been translated, only the original title is provided. Bibliographical notes are provided when help to identify either, or both, the original version of a work and its final form; in some cases, such notes should be present but are not yet.
